This work is an examination of the state-of-the-art of the two layer, integrated type atmospheric mixed-layer models with emphasis on applications to the marine regime. A linear synoptic scale mixed-layer microphysical scale model structure is suggested for short term (24 hour) forecasts of atmospheric variables with naval applications. Several potential deficiencies in the present knowledge are identified for physical parameterizations (particularly the entrainment rate) and the synoptic scale forcing requirements. It is concluded that these models, though promising, have not been verified for a wide range of atmospheric conditions
